Xena makes me laugh - emotional advice. That about sums it up.

In addition to make up - which I know, is horrifyingly eye opening, when it comes to showing my insecurities, I shower too... sometimes I use all the hot water cuz I like it so much. Could I be on the verge of suicide? Perhaps I am Schizophrenic? Hmmm? Hmmm?

I was afraid of that. I have a hard time getting much product on the applicator. I just bought it so I may return it.

One of the best ways to apply is to take a fluffy eyeshadow brush (MAC brush #224 is a good one) and take a tiny bit of MAC paint (if that's your primer of choice) on the back of your hand, and work it into the brush. You only need a tiny, tiny bit... like smaller than a pea. Then use the "windshield wiper" motion across your lids to apply. It will apply a very thin, even, sheer layer. Then apply your shadow(s) as normal. If your pressed for time, you can also use your finger to apply. Just touch your finger to the primer to make just a dot on your finger, and rub on your lid. Make sure when applying you cover the entire lid from inner corner to outer corner and up to just above the crease (don't go all the way to the brow bone).

And when using MAC Paints as primer, don't be afraid to experiment. For example, use Canton Candy paint when applying pink shades of shadow, it will make the colors really pop.
I have small eyes and I use my finger to apply it, but I just barely squeeze and touch my finger to the end of the tube and it's usually enough. It really goes a long way.


For those of you using MAC or who plan to, do you know about Back to MAC? If you return (recycle) 6 empty primary packaging containers (like lipstick tubes, compacts, etc...not the boxes) you'll get a free lipstick.

Actually, if you return to a MAC counter, you can only get a lipstick. However, if you return them to a MAC store, you can pick a lipstick, lipgloss, or eyeshadow. It excludes Viva Glam products, though, since all monies from those products go to AIDS Research.

This may sound like a dumb question, but can you buy the MAC at one place and bring the empty back to a MAC store? So, if I buy at Bloomingdale's can I still bring it back to a MAC store? Thanks

Someone mentioned that awhile back and I called our MAC store and they said just lipstick. Does it vary?

It doesn't bother me, I love MAC lipstick so that's what I want, but I was curious.


I actually have my containers ready I just keep forgetting to bring them when I go to the mall. I'll ask again in person.

I also was using the Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Anti-Puff eye roller....naaa not happy with that at all.
Thanks! I'll go back and look at it again. I clicked on it last night when you first posted, but the home page touted relieving dark circles which I don't have, so I didn't read any more.

The other thing I REALLY like about Mineral makeup - is when you take pictures, the flash doesnt reflect off your face - and make you look like a ghost. Anyone else notice that?
I tried Avon's mineral makeup and didn't like the look at all. How can a mineral look heavier than a liquid??? I knew it wasn't supposed to look like that so I just haven't tried another brand. I threw out three liquid foundtions that I've accumulated over the past months looking for the magic potion!

That I can find! I will go to B and B this weekend and see if they have any samples. Thank you!

Yes - I have 2 'sets of them' enough to get 2 items. I just always forget it when I go to the mall.

I keep meaning to pick up that stuff. I love that body oil.

And yes - emotional advice on a mascara thread, cuz you know the only reason we wear any sort of makeup is to hide our emotional flaws. The ones, deep, deep down in us.

Lipgloss fills a need. Like alcoholics self medicate, so do we....with eye shadow primer. It's sad.

That's the problem I had with Urban Decay also. You figure at $16 a tube for a month, that 50 cents a day for eyeshadow primer!

Unfortunately, no Sephora even remotely close to me, although there is an Ulta about 30 minutes away, I just never get there.

Oh oh, I have a question-I was just thinking about this this morning.
I use a Clinique hydrating foundation that I really like because it is the only one I have found that is good for my dry skin-but I am always looking for more and better.
Are there any other great hydrating foundations out there?

Also, in the summer I tend not to wear any foundation at all becaus I get some color(not a lot most of the time, I do use my SPF moisturizer) and my foundation doesn't match anymore..but my color fluctuates so just buying one more foundation wouldn't really work-what do you all do when you are a bit more golden in the summertime? I would like to even out my skin tone..

Lipgloss..I have braces now(I am 37) and was supposed to get them off July 2008, yet here I sit with them still on-so I don;t wear anything that attracts undue attention to my mouth-the only lipgloss I've worn for the last 2 years has been Neutrogena's Dreamy, because it's not bright-and I do like it, but I am so ready for something new! Hopefully by this summer..

It should still be eyeshadow, gloss, or lipstick. From what I've read here:
http://www.specktra.net/forum/f190/m...mac-b2m-25420/
it seems like other people have been experiencing the same difficulty with getting other MAC MA's to give them anything other than a lipstick.

When I worked for MAC, I worked at a counter at Macy's, and not a store, so we could only do lipsticks anyway. That's why I'm not as familiar with how the MAC stores operate. However, I do remember being told a couple years ago during Update, when the new policy was first announced, that in order to take advantage of the new policy at a MAC store, you had to register with the store and be in "the system" (name, address, etc, etc). If you didn't take the time to do all of that at the MAC store, then you could only trade your empties for a lipstick.

Again, since I worked at a counter and not a store, the policy didn't really affect me. And even now since I no longer work for the company, I have tons of empties that I could take in, I just haven't gotten around to it.

So, that is how the policy is SUPPOSED to work. But from reading the above thread, it doesn't always seem to work that way.

I am going right NOW to get some of this!!!!! Yay end of work day!

Can you believe I JUST found this thread??? And I knew it was coming!! Twenty four hours and it is already over 10 pages?!!! I told you that we needed our own little section of the DIS.

I wish I could read this whole thread but I am headed out to the mall as soon as dd12 gets home from school. I am new to the whole make-up buying thing. I mean, I've always worn make-up but I've taken a more "interest" (or maybe obsession) in it in the last year or so. It all started with an interest in taking care of my nails. After umpteen million trips to get yet another bottle of OPI (I have 20 bottles now), I've moved on to hair and makeup.

Things I like.

Nails:
Base coat: CND's Stickey start. It creates a stickey base for your color to adhere too.
Color: OPI: not because the color is so much better than any other. Just because I like how all the bottles match. I even bought the OPI train case to keep them all safe. Sick, I know.
Top coat: Seche Vite. I just got a free OPI top coat (with the purchase of two bottles of color) and it's not near as good as Seche. I'm going right back to Seche when this is out.

30 minutes spent on my nails and it will last for a week.

Make up:
Lips: Buxom Lips by Bare Escentuals. LOVE it I have Candi right now, and I want more. I just love the way it feels on my lips. I remember CathrynRose saying she didn't like it. But I guess its a personal thing. I put on an hour ago and it's still tingles.

Cheeks: NARS blush. I have the one that starts with "O" I don't know if I can put the name on here without points. I'm new to this item. I would like to get another color for variety. Any suggestions??? I'm headed to Sephora sooon. I also have a highlighter, Softlights by Smashbox in shimmer. Gives me a glowey "lit from within" look without settling in my wrinkles.

Mascara: Jury is still out on this one. Right now I am trying Maybelline's Full N Soft and the L'Oreal double extend. I had Too Faced Lash Injection. I liked it but I'm looking for something cheaper since I have to throw it out after three months. The most important thing is that it cannot smudge my undereye area.

Perfume: Chanel #5 Every time I'm at the mall, I spritz it on.

Hair: I like Redken's Blond Glam and Matrix Amplify XL. I just found Nexxus Color Ensure shampoo with a free tiny bottle of Color Assure conditioner at Rite Aid marked down to four bucks . Just got my hair colored so I am using that right now.

I have to go. I will come back and read the rest of this thread. I'm so glad I found you guys today! If I pick anything up tonight, I will let you know.

Ditto.

I can't find a mascara that I "love" to save my life. I just want one that doesn't cost a fortune and actually does what it says. For some reason my lashes are much thinner and shorter on my right eye than my left and I want something that is actually going to make them look fuller and longer.
